"Really adorable!"

This was purchased for our son and his girlfriend who is a veterinarian. It made ,along with the dog a charmingly colorful gift. They both loved their gifts and also appreciated that it is a gift that helps support artists and their craft. The fact that they are using recycled flip flop materials makes it also good for the environment. Love Novica for gift giving!! These animals are very charming.

"Charming"

This was a holiday gift purchased for our son and his girlfriend. We try to find ways to give gifts that help the artists as well as please the one receiving the gift. Novica is one of my favorite places to shop because I like to think that the act of giving should be done thoughtfully. This dog made from recycled flip flops was a delightful and fun gift for someone who loves animals or someone who loves quirky colorful art!

"Colorful and cute"

I have travel to East Africa many times and have purchased flip flop animal sculptures for family and friends but never for myself. When I saw the giraffe, I had to have him. I love supporting such a great project to recycle flip flops into awesome works of art. Lots of time and love go into making these forever creations. Colors are vibrant and high quality craftsmanship.

Purchased to go along side a tall giraffe statue. Amazing how the artist created it out of flip flops.
